We are also a manufacturer making and selling comprehensive ranges in business niches from recycled furniture to hot/cold therapy, signs and workwear.
Since 2000, we have launched over 45 business units and added over 100,000 products across many markets, and we continue to innovate and develop our portfolio.
In 2022, we launched EcoCentric – a website which only sells genuinely eco-friendly products with no ‘greenwashing’. EcoCentric represents everything we stand for: ethically-sourced, eco-conscious products for business, honestly marketed and an idea sparked by one of the team.
Mike and Martyn run Poole Bay Holdings as a dynamic, ambitious meritocracy. We believe everyone rises together, and we reward loyalty and innovation.
Like many of our team, you can join on the shop floor and reach the top levels of the business by showing commitment to the company’s ideals and dedication to your work.
Staff voices matter. We believe good ideas can come from anywhere in the company, and we like empowering people to make them happen. As a result, dozens of product and website ideas have come from staff across the company.Our Culture
